Midlands Open, Sculpture Garden and New Exhibition Space Launch

Art Gallery in the East Midlands featuring original contemporary artwork by leading artists in their respective disciplines of Painting, Printmaking, Photography and Sculpture. Located in the village of Castle Donington in North West Leicestershire, close to M1 and M42 networks and within easy reach of Leicester, Derby and Nottingham. The gallery itself, a beautifully converted barn, is situated behind one of the oldest buildings in Castle Donington. This thatched cottage dates back to the Tudor period and is set in beautiful gardens surrounded by trees and farmland where we will be launching our NEW sculpture garden in July, 2015.

The gallery is currently broken up into three main spaces. The first of which is the main gallery space where we currently hold around seven major exhibitions a year, each lasting around six weeks. The secondary and upstairs gallery spaces feature a rotating collection of work by our represented artists. A Fourth exhibition space is scheduled to be launched on 11th July alongside the opening of our sculpture garden. The opening event will take place from 2 – 6pm and will feature wines, beers and refreshments from local micro brewery ‘The Chequered Flag‘ as well as the midlands open and new work by our represented artists in the new exhibition space.

Featuring a diverse range of artists, Tarpey Gallery is a great place to discover and buy exciting and affordable contemporary Artwork. Contact Luke Tarpey at or 0777 240 4293 for sales enquiries, opening night information or to arrange a viewing. You can also sign up to the mailing list for opening night invitations, newsletters, updates on new arrivals at the gallery and more. The gallery is currently open from Thursday – Sunday, 10am – 5pm.

“The opening of the Tarpey Gallery in the small town of Castle Donington in late 2009, has been a cause for some celebration. For this is a large, light and beautifully converted space dedicated to showing top-class uncompromisingly contemporary work”

Nicholas Usherwood, Galleries Magazine, July 2011
